Come one, come all and ring in the New Year. Ring it in for your time zone or join in with others for different zones.

Mikey is supposed to provide a link that will show us the various time zones around the world. May also provide a link to a clock.

Here's a map that shows the high variability of time zones. Now I have to figure out Tonga which shows as 13 hours off.

I'd like to join in but will be staying at a resort tonight to watch the fireworks over Surfers Paradise(yeh it's the name of the town) with some family and friends and will be eating and drinking with them. One time where I can't be anti-social and sneak off to the computer to post about whisky.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone one of the forum!

13 off GMT. Stupid map didn't put + or - in front of hours for ahead/behind GMT. Grr.

Dram, you can always join in on "Saturday" for those of us that are coming in way behind you. We're some 33+ hours to go.

That sounds terrible. Is it treatable?

Happy New Years to all those I've missed so far. Admiral, Dramtastic, et al have a joyous 2011. :D Need to go check where we are now.

Hm, it seems it is Burma/Myanmar and the Cocos Islands just past. Therefore a wee nip of the Glenfiddich to you.
